Cycling at the University of Colorado Boulder has a long history of success. Since 1987, the year of the first Collegiate National Championships, University of Colorado Boulder has produced over 60 individual National Champions and taken home 12 Team Event National titles (Road Team Time Trial and Track Team Pursuit). Additionally, we have won the Overall Team Omnium at 12 National Championships. Many University of Colorado Boulder racers have gone on to the professional ranks after graduation and achieved success at the highest level of the sport.

While competition-level at the National Championships is between the elite racers on the team, conference competition is all about team participation with riders at every level contributing to the team's success. The University of Colorado Boulder is a powerhouse in the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference, consistently battling cross-state rival Fort Lewis College for top honors.

While performance and results are important, the team actively encourages each member to reach their potential and to be their best in the University of Colorado Boulder's extraordinary range of challenging academic and extra-curricular opportunities. CU Cycling takes an active role in the larger community volunteering for various sporting and non-sporting events in Boulder and the surrounding area.
